The rep added, saying:

"Rihanna was then examined by a doctor at her rehearsal Monday, who decided to put her on vocal rest for 48 hours because the singer was at risk of damaging her vocal cords. The singer arrived at the Staples Center but did not walk the red carpet. She went to rehearsals and left."

Other Sources revealed that Riri had been struggling with the illness for a while and is still on medication.
